hey guys i got some new rubber for the rear and put rear rim on front but my problem is if i hit a bum hard enough front tyre scrubs the guard.

Im running
245/35 Z R20" on front
255/40 R20" on rear

rear don't touch the guards at all amazingly enought(looks so sexy)


dose anyone know anyone who flares guards in brisbane perferably north side and how much would i be looking at?

Nice work. Ford would decide the maximum size wheels they want to accomodate on each model and then make an allowance. They would then fit a large set of wheels like yours to make sure everything meets the allowance. Most of this would happen on a computer nowadays.

If you haven't already done this consider getting some mates in the back or heavy stuff in the boot and doing some hard bumpy corners.

what and shred and damage the tyre? maybe not the rear don't scrub so it no problem and if it did id get hammer out and smack the inner wheel arch away to make room 4 the tyre.

No, steady as she goes :shock: . . . maybe put the originals on the front, but it's only a suggestion.

That way you don't miss the chance of altering them if need be with nlbxr6's machine :)
